Tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy has officially overtaken former Vice President Mike Pence in the national polls as he continues to bring the heat in the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

According to polling data from Real Clear Politics, Ramaswamy surpassed Pence with 5.9 percent of the vote for the Republican nominee, while Pence received 5.7 percent.

Ramaswamy, who entered the political arena as a fresh face in politics, has seen his support surge as of late and has tied in a few polls with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, proving that he is a serious contender. However, both he and DeSantis remain dozens of points behind longtime frontrunner Donald Trump.

Donald Trump continues to dominate all GOP challengers by a 31.7 point lead, and according to the poll, 51 percent of respondents say that they will support Trump in the Republican primary.

DeSantis came in second place receiving 19.3 percent of the vote, while Ramaswamy came in third with 5.9 percent.

Furthermore, Mike Pence received 5.7 percent, Nikki Haley received 3.4 percent, Sen. Tim Scott received 2.9 percent, and Chris Christie garnered 2.1 percent. Burgum, Hutchinson, and Suarez are all polling at less than one percent, according to the data.

Ramaswamy's jump in the polls comes on the heels of a widely celebrated performance at the Turning Point Action conference in West Palm Beach, Florida last weekend.

During a recent appearance on Human Events Daily with host Jack Posobiec, the presidential hopeful explained that he is rising in the polls because voters see him as the "independent" choice as he is not backed by a super PAC nor receives funding from GOP establishment donors.
